24 Light Mozzarella Sticks (mine were 2.5g Fat per)
100g All Purpose Flour
120g Panko Bread Crumbs
2 Large Eggs
Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
1. Unpackage your mozzarella sticks and put them in a freezer safe Ziploc bag. Place it in the freezer overnight or till frozen.
2. Once frozen, add your all-purpose flour and panko bread crumbs each to their own shallow dish. I used Pyrex rectangle Tupperware containers. Then add your 2 large eggs and buffalo sauce to a bowl and whisk till all are combined.
3. Now it’s time to coat them. I used my left hand as dry and right as wet. So line your dishes in the order of all purpose flour, eggs/buffalo sauce, panko bread crumbs. Take a frozen mozzarella stick, dip it into the flour covering all sides. Then dip it into the egg/buffalo sauce covering it like you did in the flour. Then dip in the panko doing the same process. You will need to do a double coat on these, so repeat this process one more time with the same mozzarella stick. Add to a pan to hold till you add to your air fryer. Repeat this process for all 24 mozzarella sticks.
4. I had to do this in 3 batches because my air fryer could only hold 8-9 sticks each time. So spray your air fryer tray with non-stick cooking spray and add your sticks. Spray the tops of the sticks with your cooking spray and then cook at 380 degrees F for 6-7 minutes total. And that’s it! Repeat for the rest of the mozzarella sticks and enjoy!
